Sam Cooke

Audio available soon:


He stepped in the water Helped the fishes swim When he left those fish were singing So of course they killed him The wrong kind of voice

Wrong kind of skin His car was way too pretty So of course they killed him of course they killed him of course they killed him of course they killed him of course they killed him He was calm and patient The stranger's twin He put his hands down upon the sick so of course they killed him They didn’t know where to start Or where to begin They were scared and panicked So of course they killed him of course they killed him of course they killed him of course they killed him of course they killed him Some will don't get it Some understand And some side with the soldier Who cut off Victor Jara's hands And you can blame the timing You can blame bad luck But I swear a man can't speak the truth Without his throat getting cut of course they killed him of course they killed him of course they killed him


Recorded in Mexico City at La Bestia Studios by Juan Victor Belisario Figuera
